About me

I’m Mayah, a plus size chick from London who loves fashion beauty and music. I spent several years working professionally as a singer and musician. Now my music making these days is pretty much limited to church, although I still write and record from time to time.

It’s no secret that I’m a huge Michael Jackson fan and for years I have been working with some of my best friends on many MJ related projects. To see some of the other stuff I get up to check out our websites: MJVibe, King Of Shop and Kingvention.

My Blog

I had been blogging over at beautyfulyouniverse.blogspot.com since September 2013 and felt it was time to start afresh right here. I initially started blogging as a way to showcase style and fashion options to plus size women struggling with their style. For years I, like many women in London and around the UK were limited when it came to fashion and so as a result had a negative perception of myself and what was available. Since discovering a series of fashion brands to cater women of size I have been having a blast playing dress up! For the past few years it’s been my mission to encourage and show plus size women all over that we can and do look amazing regardless of what we choose to wear! Self empowerment, body positivity and fun fashion are my things and these tend to be the main topics you’ll find on this blog through my fashion and beauty reviews.  You may see the odd lifestyle post thrown in too.

I hope you enjoy your time here on the blog and I thank you for taking the time to check me out.
